BOUVETØYA

The Last Place on Earth

Description

They climbed the highest mountain on every continent and trekked across deserts of snow to the North and South Poles.  Now, father and son are sailing to the end of the World,
the most remote land, the last place on Earth: Bouvet Island.

Together, Jason and Bruno Rodi take a personal voyage across tumultuous seas to leave a message to future generations on the summit of the most remote land on the planet.  A remarkable adventure to a volcanic land mass located in the heart of the Antarctic ocean will lead these explorers to face humanity's place on the planet.  Against the odds, through powerful encounters with wildlife and the immeasurable forces of nature, they seek a new world.
The farther they travel, the deeper they dive within.

No one has ever reached the summit of the island, but it's there that father and son will carry a a titanium tube filled with messages from around the world. The content of the time capsule, like the challenges facing them on their journey, make THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH a dramatic quest combining
human adventure and a distinct global message.

In September 2020, unbeknownst to filmmaker Jason Rodi, a play based on his film documenting his journey to Bouvet was produced in Spain by Julio Manrique.  Entitled Bouvetøya (la necessitat d’una illa), or the necessity for an island, it opened the 2020 temporada alta festival with: "a journey to a magical island: Bouvetøya, the last place on earth."

According to the program, Julio Manrique has imagined an island where everything is possible, even making the invisible visible. The festival’s opening show endeavors to take the audience to a place where culture and knowledge are cared for and preserved as a treasure, valuable and fragile in equal measure. The director, inspired by Ray Bradbury (Fahrenheit 451), Shakespeare (The Tempest) and Jason Rodi's The Last Place on Earth, welcomes the audience with a production that seeks to be an act of resistance and rebellion. A defense for what seems unnecessary until extraordinary events show that the intangible – such as culture and beauty – can also be a good of first necessity.
